Wow, there are some recipes that are time consuming and then there are some recipes that are just plain: ridiculous! This was one of them – I think they took about 2 hours from start to finish. That will turn you all off of them – and I don’t blame you. At least you have a warning, I had no idea! On top of that Steve doesn’t really like Pot Stickers to begin with :( They were really good, but I don’t imagine making them much to often in the future. My suggestion would be for you to buy them from Sam’s club – they’ve got a great frozen variety of these :)
